  • Potato, Leek and Lentil Salad with Citrus and Herbs

Ingredients:

2 1/2 pounds multicolored fingerling potatoes, rinsed and sliced lengthwise

1 large leek (white part), halved lengthwise and sliced

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus 2 teaspoons, separated

1/2 cup canned lentils, rinsed

Zest of 1 orange

3 tablespoons orange juice

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon honey

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

1/2 bunch fresh chives, finely chopped

1/2 bunch fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. On a large sheet pan, toss the potatoes and leeks with the ¼ cup oil, season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper, and roast for 30 minutes, until the leeks are lightly crispy and the potatoes are golden on the edges.

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining oil, orange zest and juice, vinegar, honey and mustard, season with salt and black pepper, and stir in the Parmesan until incorporated. Once roasted, add the vegetables, lentils, herbs and dressing; stir to combine.

A good salad strikes a perfect balance of textures and flavors, but it’s easy to overdo it with rich ingredients, especially when striving to add savory elements. For a vegetarian salad that hits all the right notes, combine tangy cheese with meaty mushrooms and bitter greens.

Tortellini Salad

Tortellini Salad
This is a colorful salad, and you can make it even more so by using multi-colored tortellini. Switch up the vegetables as you like, depending on what you have on hand, and what looks good at the market. I like a combo of grape or cherry tomatoes, spinach and onions. Artichoke hearts and olives add nice briny flavor.
